Comms with young kids..

8 10 2012

Wow, it’s got to be daunting for a 5 year old to be spoken to by and adult.. Always looking up at this very big person..

I have found that I get more “traction” as it were, when I go down on my knees to their level to chat. It’s a lot more comfortable for them and they become a lot more receptive (almost certainly because they feel a lot less threatened or dominated).

Try it sometime, it also show them that you respect them.
